In a world of beeps and clicks, Smile reminds us there is a human on the other side of every screen. Smile is the largest provider of loyalty programs in the world. They power the loyalty programs for over 40,000 eCommerce merchants, which have rewarded over 100 million people. These user numbers are growing rapidly, especially with the recent acceleration of eCommerce worldwide.
Above all, we strive to make people happy - from the merchant to their consumer, to our own team. The Smile team is globally distributed with employees in Canada, the USA, South America, EMEA, and APAC. We've been recognized as a "Best Place to Work" in Canada and look forward to expanding this on a global scale. As a business, we are in constant evolution and the same is true of our people. We’re here to support each other in our growth. We talk about our career & personal goals and lean into the diversity within our people for mentorship, tools, and encouragement to grow.
Be Humble - think of the team before thinking of yourself. Find the solution that creates the most competitive advantage for our merchants, regardless of their source. Celebrate everyone’s wins as if they were our own and go out of our way to give others recognition.
Be Hungry - set hard goals, ask lots of questions, and learn every day. Our drive to help others keeps us committed to infinite learning and taking initiative when no one is watching. We welcome ambiguity as it is an opportunity to leave our mark and understand autonomy and accountability go hand in hand.
Be Human - show empathy towards others, and consider the impact of your decisions on others. We know that Smile.io as a business is in constant evolution - the same is true of our people. We’re here to support each other in our growth, so we talk openly about our career & personal goals. With such a diverse team of people, we know we can offer you the mentorship, tools, and encouragement you need to grow.
About the Role:
As part of the Live Chat team, you’ll be the first point of contact for both prospective and tenured merchants running their loyalty programs with Smile. You will be expected to quickly handle a high volume of conversations, triaging those conversations to determine if you can help yourself, or if you need to smoothly escalate the conversation to another Smile support team. We are looking to hire for this role with a focus on career development into a technical support role. This means that candidates who can demonstrate technical competency with things like SQL, or other coding languages/libraries, will have some preference in the hiring process. This being said - we are always looking for Live Chat rockstars, so if you do not have that level of technical ability, please still do apply!

- Clean internal conversation flow that fosters a positive merchant experience and sentiment.
- Based in/able to work 9-5pm EST (+/- an hour) Monday to Friday.
- High level of empathy.
